    I have been working at Goldman Sachs full-time

    Pros

    you can make a lot of money here but it is largely tied to your bonus so it is not guaranteed. You will work with a lot of smart people and some not so smart but very well connected...you will need them both.

    Cons

    home life can suffer as you will have to put in a great deal of time. Need more transparency into how decisions are being made so that people do not feel shafted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    focus on collaboration and not competition internally.

    I worked at Goldman Sachs full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Intelligent and Loyal Employees and Health Benefits and Compensation and Children Center and Location and Food Services. Company was great until five years ago. When it was a public company it was an amazing company to work for with amazing individuals. Managers acctually cared!

    Cons

    There is no work life balance and everyone is just a head count. Everyone is spread very thin with the expectation of doing more with less which then provides less for the clients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should be more like the original company before they went public, when the actually cared about their employees.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO
